Constructive Selected as Design Partner by the New York City Campaign Finance Board
Constructive is very pleased to announce that we’ve been selected by the New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB) as its interactive and brand design partner.
Constructive will partner with the CFB towards the development and launch of a new website, helping the nonprofit in its mission to better connect voters with information about New York City campaign financing, elections, and candidates.
The CFB administers one of the strongest, most effective campaign finance systems in the country. NYC’s matching funds program amplifies the voice of average New Yorkers in city elections by matching their small contributions with public funds. By increasing the value of small-dollar contributions, the program reduces the possibility and perception of corruption from large contributions and unlimited campaign spending, and encourages citizens from all walks of life to run for office. Through its rigorous oversight and enforcement efforts, the CFB holds candidates accountable for using public funds responsibly. The CFB publishes detailed public information about money raised and spent in city elections by candidates and independent spenders, bringing greater transparency to the democratic process. Its NYC Votes campaign engages and educates voters through community outreach, the Voter Guide, and Debate Program, empowering New Yorkers to make informed choices at the polls. In addition, the CFB seeks to improve the voter experience by advocating for legislative changes to the registration and voting process.
